Keywords: Hospitalization, Family Support Program

All families have the opportunity to participate in our Family Support Program. This Program assists in connecting our families with others who may be experiencing similar challenges, with the hopes of finding comfort in knowing others are sharing in similar difficulties. Continuing our commitment to keeping our families well-informed, we have dedicated a portion of our site to "Health Resources". This is where our families can access links to a variety of medical and support information sites.

As family members ourselves, we understand the need to feel supported during a loved-one's hospitalization. When you hire a Hospital Companion, you add a member to your team. Your Companion is not a hospital sitter. She is your health advocate who supports both the patient and their family. Our Family Support Program provides a variety of tools to assist us in meeting that need.

If you are a healthcare provider, contact us to see how we can partner to offer support services and tools to your patients and their families.
